Look guys, lets not make this a bashfest. Thats all Im asking.

Hell, 10 years ago some of the "big-name" tuners nowadays didnt have the stellar reputations they have now. But they worked hard to correct their mistakes, learned what worked and what didnt, figured out what the limitations were for each engine series and changed their tuning to better use those hard parts, and improved their products and their customer service as they went along.

And guess what? Everyone benefited from that in the end.

I try to keep it within 3 days or less, depending on volume it can be tough..........I always ask dealers to get me all the info ASAP and prior to the truck coming in for tuning.

I supply tuning for 100 or so dealers/resellers on a very regular basis, another 100 or so that do small volumes of tunes, plus all the customer web orders and call in orders.

Last time i checked my data base of 100% stock files for tunes it was 2,361 Files, 157 Folders, and then my tune library folder is 38,391 Files, 7,135 Folders.

As someone who has been doing this for a long, long time its difficult to please everyone 100% of the time, I do my best, but sometimes you just cannot make everyone happy.

We do miss some emails, we do get emails sent that we don't ever receive, and last minute stuff is always tough to fill, I do my best, but as in life, sometimes its not good enough for some and we part ways.

Well I've used Tony for my tunes. Yes, sometimes he is busy and can't get back right away but he always does get back or advise he is swamped and will answer ASAP. Tony calls it the way he sees it. I would use him again.

There would be a good chance of us still using Tony. He had good dealer pricing and good Tunes. The issue of having to email him the stock files was the part that hurt us on that. I understand the reason he does that and it makes total sense. It just did not work the best for us.

Stock files for LB7 and LLY are critical to making it work for the dealer and the customer, the issues with those two particular controllers will cause huge amounts of headaches if a stock read is not obtained 1st.

LB7 Controllers corrupt easily, and many have been locked up with TIS, hand held tuners and auto-locking files.

We still repair 10+ ecms some months for LB7, just had a dealer in Upstate NY fight with 2 of them for 2 or 3 days and had nothing but hell with them.

I try to save my dealers those hassles, so before they spend money on any non-refundable Vins and Tune Files.

Everything else I prefer OBD Scan.

Dealers get priority, and if I have a VIN# in advance as soon as the order is placed I can write the tune, wait for the info and send it almost immediately..........it not that difficult to coordinate those types of requests.

The Cummins stuff always needs a scan, because there is no TIS Lookup for a Cummins, everything is based of CAL ID and there are literally so many and with no way of knowing exactly what it is its a PITA to figure it out.

Once again, I know every shop is got a different situation, but 3 days or less isn't bad turnaround, ask Dallas in Canada, he gets his stuff within hours or 1 day usually.

RidgeRunner gets my vote. I am not a dealer but I do tune probably one truck a month on the side. Even for a small time guy like me Tony hasn't let me down. I don't mind sending in a base file. If my customers aren't understanding enough to meet me for 10 minutes to get a base file then I just don't do business with them. Tony always gets back with me within 2 or 3 days. And if there's a problem he's quick to respond even late into the night.
